it is so not good that i couldn't find help tho when i was trying to figure it out from the support team here.. tho they been good but the silence wasn't encouraging. So i manage to figure out how to hide the category... if you are trying to have a hang on it, here is how i did it.. Page setup >>>>> Homepage >>>> Categories.. Find the attached below. you will find where i use '0' that's what got that subcategory hidden. and i purposely didn't allow it show numbers because no much listings yet.. maybe when i have 1000 listings, i will allow it show and also notice where i had to hide the category icons 'Don't show icons'..Have fun! @Mark, not too happy because you didn't help out. all the same, good job on the theme.
